Clouds are among my favorite things to watch. I still remember being very small as I looked up from my comfortable spot in the grass and watched the clouds become so many interesting shapes. Later the observations included changes in color. Simpler times through the eyes of a child!
3/15/20 Clouds On the west coast of Florida you can stand on the beach, in the sun, watching ominous storm clouds roll in off the Gulf of Mexico and right behind those dark clouds is blue sky, puffy white clouds and more sunshine. There\’s blue sky behind even the darkest of skies. 3.15.20 Clouds img032

For our prompt of “Caterpillar,” I chose a little one of the monarch variety. I love these caterpillars and find them beautiful even though they can’t quite compete with the beauty of what they will soon become.
Beautifully done Charlie! It has been a different day today. A lady and her husband came and picked up the loom which I sold online to her. I was going to weave when I retired but painting happened instead. That freed up a large amount of space in my studio which helped me organize better. We went out for a sandwich and a beer this evening as I refuse to totally become a recluse. We were careful. I worry about the local economy. Enough rambling.
We had snow today! It didn’t stick but was still a bit of a shock as we hadn’t had any all winter. Of course, that meant a big drop in temperature, so all the more reason to stay at home! I’m so glad I paint. I could self-quarantine for months and not feel too bad about staying at home.
I know right? Philippe said… “is that snow?” as though it weren’t possible. I’m ready for warmer temps though. That said, yep.. if you told me I had to stay indoors and paint all the time, I don’t think I’d be too sad about that. 😉
So beautiful!!!! 🙂 Yes we are all in this together. Time to see what we all have in common instead of what we do not and unite!! lol I feel laughter helps too so a dose of laughs a day keep the grumpies away lol. 🙂
Yes, the rat-race has stopped.
Many of us have been begging for the world to slow down, to take time, to prioritize the real important things, like health, family, mindfulness, caring, solidarity… over ratrace and money
I wish everybody a lot of strenght. Take good care for yourselves, your health etc. Shakespeare wrote King lear during The Plague, it is said. Let’s all make fantastic art.
What a lovely little sketch. You just reminded me of a happy moment from last year. I planted a milkweed plant. (It was not a cheap plant.) When it went to seed, I saved all it’s pods and shared with numerous people. It’s heartwarming, when you explain to people that this is the only plant Monarch’s caterpillars feed on and they immediately want to plant some. Our Monarch population has dwindled dramatically here, so I feel if I can share my seeds, I am helping them. 🙂
